Windies sweep Afghanistan in ODI series

Shai Hope's unbeaten 109 anchored West Indies to a five-wicket victory over Afghanistan in the third and final one-day international, giving Kieron Pollard a 3-0 clean sweep in his first ODI series as captain.

Hope's seventh ODI hundred included eight fours and three sixes and came off 145 balls as West Indies cruised to 5-253 in 48.4 overs on Monday.

Roston Chase, who batted at number seven, remained unbeaten on 42 off 32 deliveries.

Earlier, after being put in to bat, Afghanistan posted their highest total of the series - 7-249 - after half-centuries by former skipper Asghar Afghan (86) and Mohammad Nabi (50 not out).

They shared a 127-run stand for the sixth wicket after seamer Keemo Paul, playing his first match of the series, claimed 3-44 and Afghanistan slumped to 5-118 in the 29th over.

The series whitewash stretched Afghanistan's losing streak to 12 matches in ODIs.

Both teams will start a three-match Twenty20 series on Thursday at the same venue. It will be followed by a one-off test this month.
